Who Are You?

What’s in a last name?

I was born a … Venezio
I grew up a …. Venezio
My mother was a …. Nesgood
Her mother was a ….. Cavanaro (funny story about this – my grandma’s brothers changed their last name to “Cavanaugh” when they enlisted in the military.  Apparently having an Italian last name was a bad thing?)

My father was a ….. Venezio
His mother was a ….. Markwell (my mom says this was changed at Ellis Island, likely from – forgive my spelling – Machiavelli)
And now I am a ….. Preston


Our family of Venezios…by way of Cavanaro and Nesgood (on my mom’s side) and Markwell (on my dad’s side).
